Garbage Truck Driver Killed In Diana Car Accident

DIANA, NEW YORK (November 28, 2023) – A garbage truck driver has tragically died in a Diana car accident after a tire failure along Route 3, according to New York State Police.

Diana police officials are saying that the accident took place around 5:11 p.m. on Thursday. A garbage truck driver was traveling down Route 3 when one of the tires on the truck failed.

The garbage truck driver lost control of their vehicle before crashing. Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim.

Sadly, the driver of the garbage truck later died after being rushed to the hospital. A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Diana Garbage Truck Accidents

Tire blowouts are one of the major causes of deadly car accidents in the United States. According to one report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019 alone 612 people died in tire-related crashes. Thousands more are left with serious injuries. One of the best ways to prevent tire blowouts is to perform proper maintenance on tires. For example, tires should be properly inflated to the correct level. Tire should also be periodically rotated, balanced and aligned. Victims of tire blowouts tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage

Depending on the facts of any case, the company that manufactured a tire could be liable for a collision. Companies have a legal obligation to create products that are reasonably safe. If a tire manufacturer creates a defect tire that bursts and leads to an accident, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The family of any person that died in a tire blowout accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
